We arrived on christmas eve after a long journey. We had requested a lake view room with a bath and also asked for a high floor .. We got the high floor but no bath so contacted reception. It was no trouble to the staff to relocate us to a much bigger and nicer room with a bath but on a lower floor .The views from our balcony were stunning ,the castle lit up at night and the island sometimes shrouded in early morning mist.
The buffet breakfast had a good choice of hot and cold food ,cereals, fresh fruit and champagne if you wanted it. Freshly prepared eggs etc could be ordered from the kitchen .There was complimentary coffee and cake at 4 o'clock and the evening 4 course meal was enjoyable with a choice of menu.There were no tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms and the t.v.s were the older style c.r.t. The beds had mattresses which could be adjusted in firmness and were comfortable. We did use the swimming pool once and would describe it as exhilarating. It is very cold but there are several saunas to warm up afterwards. Guests can also use the pools and water slide etc of the nearby Hotel Golf which would probably be more suitable for children. We have stayed in many 5 star hotels and would rate this one as 4 star in comparison.The outside appearance is a bit grim but the inside is pleasant and has lovely views from the lounge and bar areas. A real fire in the lounge area would really have made a difference to the overall atmosphere of the hotel especially when coming back from a walk around the lake or a day on the slopes .We enjoyed our stay here and in Bled in particular the low key family christmas activities we joined in with i.e.,seeing Santa and Father Frost ,the traditional dancing and music and the torghlight procession around the lake on Christmas Eve not to forget the mulled wine . All the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful .
